Team and corporate structure
Our structure and governance
The British Waterways Board, operating as Scottish Canals, continues in Scotland as a stand alone public body following the transfer of the functions of the British Waterways Board in England and Wales to the Canal & River Trust on 2nd July 2012.
Following the approval of The British Waterways Board (Transfer of Functions) Order 2012 (“the BW Order”) Scottish Canals assumed responsibility and accountability for Scotland's canals, and meets regularly at canal-side locations across Scotland.Corporate structure
Over the last decade, a new vision for Scottish Canals has driven the nation’s 250-year-old inland waterways into a renaissance, reimagining these former industrial transport arteries as corridors of opportunity, tourism, and transformation that greatly benefit the people and economy of Scotland.
